Ironstate is slowly building the first phase of its big project on Staten Island’s North Shore, which will bring 571 apartments to the former Homeport naval base in Stapleton. Now the firm has filed plans for the second phase of the development, called URL Staten Island, at 5 Hudson View Loop.

The new building will rise four stories and hold 328 apartments. Just like phase one, Minno Wasko are the architects of record, and Dutch firm Concrete is responsible for the design.

The project’s apartments will be divided across 227,608 square feet of residential space, for an average unit of just 693 square feet. There will be 73 units on the first floor, 86 on the second, 90 on the third, and 79 on the fourth. The cellar will host a 255-car parking garage. That would seem huge anywhere else in the city, but it’s typical on Staten Island, which boasts the highest car ownership rates in the five boroughs.

By the time URL Staten Island is finished, it will include 900 apartments, 35,000 square feet of retail, and 600 parking spots. The city is also investing $32 million to create a mile-long waterfront esplanade next door and build new roads within the complex.

Ironstate’s parcel stretches 119,397 square feet between Water and Prospect Streets, less than a block from the Stapleton station on the Staten Island Railway.

Staten Island is the city’s slowest growing borough in terms of both population and construction, but plenty of construction is in the works in Stapleton. BFC Partners is planning a 214-unit building on Bay Street, right next to URL Staten Island. Plus, last month, a local developer filed plans for a seven-story mixed-use development on the corner of Prospect and Bay Streets.

    We like being the slowest growing borough. Roads maxed out now. Very little vacant buildable land left on S.I. Homes sell quickly on east & south shores, particularly in Grant City, New Dorp, Oakwood areas. Safest of the boroughs, second highest income after Manhattan. Lately getting wave of buyers from north Brooklyn and southwest Brooklyn who have sold their old buildings and now want to live quietly. Some new owners buying homes for grown children at the same time so family can be nearby.
